More bucks informallly....

Santo Domingo.-  Most of Dominican Republic’s workers earn more per hour on average in informal jobs than in formal ones, the Central Bank affirmed Tuesday, but noted senior posts such as managers and administrators as the exception.

it said mid level technicians, office employees, service workers, artisans, drivers and untrained workers, usually work fewer hours in the informal sector, and notes it as the reason why they earn a lower average income than formal employees.

"This contradicts statements of the business sector that formal workers earn more than informal ones," the Central Bank said citing national work survey (ENFT) figures.

It said the formal sector’s lower income has spurred a jump in informality from 46.2% in 2000 to 50.6% last year. "Working in the informal sector doesn’t mean that workers are dissatisfied with their jobs, on the contrary, working on their own is thought of highly by workers in this category."

if people only remembered where this island was prior to Leonel. These people where in darkness man. Almost as lost in time as Cuba. We must learn to look at the big picture, forget this illogical party affiliation nonsense. I have never voted for a party in my life, I could care less. I vote for the individual and the individual's ability, intellect,etc. The PLD will rule this country for at least 40 years, That's the fault of the other two parties, which lack any candidate with at least one working brain cell. That's what they should be working on.

So you voted for the NARCO Genius Lie-onel who negotiated a contract with Barrick "Stold" that gave 97% of our Gold away and we barely got 3% if anything.

....... You voted for the guy who gave Arturo del Tiempo Márquez, the International Spanish Drug Lord a US $30,000,000 million dollars loan of Dominican Taxpayers money, when the Spanish government says that bum had no credit or entrepreneurial history to justify a loan of that magnitude.

..........yeah you sure know how to pick them........
